Australia's Aboriginal people have hunted and gathered native plants and animals for food since the beginning of their history on this continent. Known as bush tucker, these traditional foods draw upon the richness of Australia's unique and varied flora and fauna and have been a sustainable source of eating for the world's oldest living culture for over 60,000 years.
Wherever you are in Australia, it's fascinating to learn about hunting, gathering, cooking and eating these foods directly from those who've been doing it for generations. Plus, you won't find many of these wonderful dishes anywhere else on Earth!
